Hurricane Matthew devastated the southwest part of Haiti. Many of our friends have reached out to us and asked how they can help. As we are ready to go to Haiti this week, our founder, Dr. Oris Guillaume, communicated with physician Dr. Brunel, who has worked with us in several mobile clinics. He also has been in communication with Haiti Cheri’s Director, Mr. Gethro Clebert, to put together an emergency response team of Scout Masters to offer our support on the ground in the form of medical treatment, water, and food supply. According to CNN, ninety- percent of Jeremie's city buildings were leveled. In the same province, 35,000 homes were destroyed. This photo from NBC shows the destruction. That's just one example. Many villages like this one had every roof ripped off, with homes, livestock, and crops completely destroyed. Although many large organizations are offering their support, before long the major relief efforts will diminish, but as always we will not forget Haiti.
As thousands of people have been displaced, the entire country is affected with communicable diseases. We know we're blessed to be a blessing (Genesis 12:2). We know from the 2010 earthquake experience that people will be headed north to our location for help. We need to be prepared at our clinic to receive those who are on their way. At the same time, the emergency response team will go out to the small, unreached parts of the country that are going unnoticed. We will leverage our medical expertise, and will provide treatment for rising diseases such as malaria, cholera, typhoid, and other water-borne ailments. We will also provide emergency food supply and shelter.
We are a small organization, with a big footprint. The great news is that we can provide specific, targeted relief in a concentrated area. We may not be able to save the nation, but we can surely save a life. Will you join us? No amount is too small. 100% of every dollar we receive from this fundraiser will go to Haiti for relief. As our founder, Dr. Oris Guillaume often says, "We do not want to miss the opportunity to save a life!" Please click the Donate button on this page, or mail a donation here:
